Deadline September 24th

As we've been navigating through the ever-changing landscape of the pandemic bnbfinder has closely monitored how it has affected the bed and breakfast industry. With this survey, we are collecting data for our fifth innkeeper survey since March 2020. We will be sharing the data in our Conference presentations as well as in a webinar. Please take a couple of minutes to complete this survey & help us provide the industry with this valuable information. As a token of our thanks for your participation, you will be entered into a drawing to win three months free at our Silver listing level (or equal value to apply toward another membership). To keep the data in our surveys consistent, we are using the same questions that we’ve used in past surveys so as to best be able to compare and contrast the responses during the various points that we’ve run our surveys.
